killing journalist is bad,but blaming the government and the AFP for the wrongdoing of
bad elements including the terrorist group and the communist NPA.
most of the extra judicial killings are the doing of this rebel group and various goons of the bad politicians.
the so called human rights group are only the legal fronts of the communist in the PHILIPPINES.
